On Friday afternoon, Nike released their ‘Nothing Beats a Londoner’ film showing the length Londoners will go to play sport in the capital, featuring some of the biggest names from the capital with Skepta, Dina Asher-Smith, Mo Farah, Alex Iwobi, Giggs, Gareth Southgate, Harry Kane, Eden Hazard, Kurupt FM and even Skepta on a Santander bike.

Shot on the streets of London from Dalston to Peckham and Brixton, the ad also features 258 real young Londoners and in addition to being a great advert, it champions their spirit, incredible athlete mindset and dedication to playing sport.

As well as the viral ad campaign, something which has been less publicised has been the great work Nike are putting in to get even more people active in London.

As part of the Nothing Beats a Londoner campaign, Nike have teamed up with MyLocalPitch in offering free football pitches from 09:00-18:00 from Monday the 12th of February until Friday the 16th of February. Nike are ‘unlocking’ football pitches across ten different locations in London – meaning you can play for free at any of the following pitches on those dates subject to availability.

To get involved, all you need to do is download the Nike app, claim your unique code and give MyLocalPitch a call.
